Work on analogy has been done from a number of disciplinary perspectives throughout the history of Western thought. This work is a multidisciplinary guide to theorizing about analogy. It contains 1,406 references, primarily to journal articles and monographs, and primarily to English language material. classical through to contemporary sources are included. The work is classified into eight different sections (with a number of subsections). A brief introduction to each section is provided… Expand
Analogy, Similarity, and the Periodic Table of Arguments
Abstract The aim of this paper is to indicate the systematic place of arguments based on the concept of analogy within the theoretical framework of the Periodic Table of Arguments, a new method forExpand

Argumentation Schemes for Argument from Analogy (d. Walton) Crrar
    There is such a huge literature on argument from analogy that during the early stages of my career I avoided work on the subject because so many scholars in so many fields had already written so muchExpand
    1 SIMILARITY , PRECEDENT AND ARGUMENT FROM ANALOGY
    In this paper, it is shown (1) that there are two schemes for argument from analogy that seem to be competitors but are not, (2) how one of them is based on a distinctive type of similarity premise,Expand

    TLDR
    It is shown that there are two schemes for argument from analogy that seem to be competitors but are not, and that when similarity is defined by means of episode schemes, it can get a clearer idea of how it integrates with the use of argument from classification and argument from precedent in case-based reasoning by using a dialogue structure. Expand
    Story Similarity in Arguments from Analogy
    TLDR
    A hybrid model of argument from analogy is presented that combines argumentation schemes and story schemes that claims that one case is similar to another in the model. Expand

    Similarities between objects, people and places pervade our thinking and influence our interaction with the environment. Many of these similarities serve no logical purpose but have a descriptive orExpand
    Proposal of a Classification of Analogies
    TLDR
    A classification of analogies based on their internal structure is proposed, which lends itself to a further understanding of the differences between certain modulations of the general idea of analogy. Expand
    Argumentation Schemes for Argument from Analogy
    In this paper I show how there are two different argumentation schemes for argument from analogy, and show by means of examples how each scheme applies to different cases in its own distinctive way.Expand
    Argument from analogy in legal rhetoric
    • D. Walton
    • Computer Science
    • Artificial Intelligence and Law
    • 2013
    TLDR
    It is shown using this example how argument from analogy is based on a similarity premise where similarity between two cases is modeled using the device of a story scheme from the hybrid theory of legal evidential reasoning. Expand

    Analogy by generalization—and the quest of the grail
    TLDR
    It is argued that a powerful kind of reasoning by analogy is provided by combining unification with most specific generalization, and a revised version of an existing algorithm is presented, which decides correctly whether or not new variables should be introduced in each case. Expand

    TLDR
    It is argued that computational studies of analogy are in a state of adolescence: looking to more mature research areas in artificial intelligence for robust accounts of basic reasoning processes and drawing upon a long tradition of research in other disciplines. Expand
